A while ago, Greg Ward proposed to add his all-singing-all-dancing
option parse, Optik, to the standard library.  He's just released
version 1.3 and thinks it's ready.  According to Greg, the getopt-sig
likes Optik.

This seems just the kind of thing to add to 2.3 without causing
complaints about the rate of language change from the user base.

Anyone disagree?
